Dipropylene glycol, mixture of isomers is used as a solvent, plasticizer, polymerization initiator and monomer. It acts as an additive used in perfumes, skin and hair care products. It is an active ingredient in commercial fog fluid, which is used as an entertainment in fog machines. Further, it is used as an intermediate in polyurethane polyols, alkyd resins and non-reinforced polyesters. In addition to this, it is used in dyes, paints, hydraulic brake fluids and cutting oils.
